Arkia for Milan Tel Aviv

As British Airways begins new services to Linate (see this issue), Milan Bergamo Airport’s route network programme is also continuing with a major development as Arkia Israeli Airlines launches a route to Tel Aviv.

Set to begin on 1 June, the airport’s first direct link to Israel will be operated twice weekly by Arkia 120-seat E195s, increasing to three times weekly during the peak season.

Arkia becomes Bergamo’s 16th carrier and marks a departure from the airport’s traditionally low-cost carrier core. Operating Bergamo’s first link to Tel Aviv, Arkia will also add the airport’s 32nd country market, immediately gaining a 15% share of weekly frequencies on the Milan – Tel Aviv route.

Arkia, based at Sde Dov Airport in Tel Aviv, has also announced it will operate three weekly flights between Stansted and Tel Aviv for the Passover holiday. The flights will be discontinued after that period, and then renewed from late May until the Jewish High Holy Days later in the year.

Hungarian low-cost airline Wizz Air has also announced it will operate four weekly flights between Luton and Tel Aviv from 24 June (see this issue).
